This is a crib line 




This dance is reconstructed from an authentic source as noted above, but you might encounter it being taught in a different fashion. Popular dances were often published more than once, sometimes with different figures, or even with different tunes; our version is faithfully reconstructed and historically informed, but alternative arrangements can be equally satisfying


Further Information:

Authority: Cahusac, Thomas (senior)
Year: 1794
Tune: Trip to Dunkirk
Notes: These figures are adapted from figures found on a Fan, Cahusac's figures are different
